Matilda Franz, A Resident of San Rafael
Known to most as Terry, Matilda Franz passed away peacefully on the morning of April 10, 2002 at the age of 73. Born May 24, 1928 in New York to Anna and John Hoffman, she was the widow of Harry Franz senior and the sister to Julia and John. She is survived by five children (Harry, Julianne, Bob, John and Mike) and nine grandchildren (Jennifer, Shaun, Lindsey, Rachel, Mary, Megan, Bobby, Kelly and Garrett). After marrying in 1948 in New York, Terry and Harry lived in Queens until 1962 when Harry was transferred to San Francisco. They moved to Marinwood with their children and have resided there ever since. After the passing of her husband in 1993, she took great pride and pleasure attending to her children, grandchildren and favored charities. An active member of St. Isabella's since 1962, she is also one of the original volunteers of St. Vincent's Depot, Vinnie's Closet and the St. Vincent's Women's Auxiliary helping to provide needed funds for the children of St. Vincent's School for Boys. Terry's life was her family, friends, and her charities, and she will be missed by all who knew her. Family and friends are invited to attend Rosary and Funeral Mass at St. Isabella's Church on Saturday, April 13, 2002 starting at 1PM. Donations may be made to St. Vincent's School for Boys.
